Most of Charmaines clients have over plucked their eyebrows over the years. Some people get up over 2 hours before they have to, to draw their eyebrows on. Imagine never having to do this again!
Do your eyebrows make you feel self conscious?
Hate the thought of your eyebrows rubbing off through the day, going swimming and smudging them or a gym session. Having permanent eyebrows would mean this would be a thing of the past.
Scared the permanent eyebrows will be too dark or the shape will go out of fashion, or that you might not like the shape?
Charmaine will never tattoo an eyebrow that would go out of fashion, her aim is to give you natural beautiful looking eyebrows that suit you. Whether you suffer with thin or sparse brows due to over plucking or fair hair, permanent make-up can help give you a realistic and natural looking brows, which lasts for years.
You can choose between hairstroke effect which mimics the natural hairs; a powder of colour which gives you the look of natural made up brows; or block brows, a more dramatic brow.
Start with a consultation…
We will start with a thorough consultation where we will discuss your desired look and see whether your brows need reshaping, filling in, lifting, thickening or defining.
It’s a good idea to bring any photos or magazine clippings of the look you would like to achieve. The semi permanent makeup treatment will commence with the creation of a template drawn onto the skin with a cosmetic pencil.
Once you are 100% happy with this template we will proceed to anaesthetise the skin. We will then allow the anaesthetic to take full effect whilst deciding on the perfect colour pigment to use in order to compliment your colourings.
To help with pain management we will regularly apply more anaesthetic throughout the treatment to allow you comfort. The treatment lasts between 1.5 – 2 hours and after the semi-permanent eyebrow treatment we will then give you full aftercare advice and arrange the date for you to come back for your top up 4-6 weeks later.
What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want. The effect is achieved by hypo-allergenic specialist pigments into the dermal layer of your skin. The results fade gradually over 2-3 years, with a “colour boost” recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application – to maintain a fresh look.
Why have Permanent Makeup?
Naturally, everyone wants to look their best at all times, this gives you this everyday! Waking up with perfectly shaped brows, defined eyes and beautiful lips without having to apply makeup, no smudging either.
What if I have specific needs?
You may have specific requirements for semi-permanent makeup such as scars, alopecia, chemotherapy, vitiligo, loss of sight or other health related concerns. Semi-permanent makeup is an extremely beneficial and very successful for these types of medical concerns.
Is Permanent Makeup safe?
We use the highest quality sterile needles, which are disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed. We follow a code of practice that ensures a safe treatment. We choose to work only with top quality pigments that meet European medical standards.
Does it hurt?
We want you to be relaxed during the treatment and in as little discomfort as possible, so we use anaesthetic before and during the treatment.
How long will it take to recover?
Normally the colour will be darker for the first few days. You may experience light to moderate swelling, especially with eyeliner and lip procedures. After the initial few days, the skin will heal and will begin to gently flake off and the treated area will lighten. It may be too light for you, so recommend to have top up around 4-6 weeks after to achieve the best results for you, to refine and perfect.
How long does Permanent makeup last?
It lasts for many years but we recommend having a colour boost around 12 months after the initial treatment allowing you to maintain a fresh look. All treatments are carried out in our luxurious salon in Ashford Kent.
